DEDICATED PROGRAMME FOR
TOMORROW’S WORKFORCE

Globally, attracting talent into the hospitality sector is imperative for sustaining the industry.

We must develop a skilled hospitality workforce quickly to keep pace with the demand being created from the hospitality sector. In Saudi Arabia, 253 new hotels are coming online by 2030.

FHS is a forum for the industry to address this issue - and also to engage with the hospitality workforce of the future and promote the sector as an attractive career path
